SEAcroft Pods – luxury pods with incredible views!
I had one extra night on the Isle of Lewis recently and have wanted to go and stay with SEAcroft for a while, having heard abut their amazing place and wonderful food from a friend. Well, I am so glad I had that extra night away as it was the single best view I have ever seen. The pods are built on the edge of a cliff overlooking Aird beach, with the cliffs and sea stacks opposite. Uninterrupted views from the pods, except for some sheep wandering past, is my idea of heaven. I love privacy and feeling totally alone and having space around me. There are 2 pods but they aren't uncomfortably close in any way. The pods themselves have everything you need and are amazingly spacious.
I woke to the sound of a lot of wind - so stayed cosy in my bed for a while before thinking I had better just check there wasn't an incredible sunrise out there. And of course, the sky was lighting up all colours from second to second, and I could view it right from the comfort of my own private balcony. I was planning on going out shooting in the morning, but there didn't seem the need when I had this amazing display of colour on my doorstep. A photographer's dream to have an interrupted view like this from their accommodation.
I opted for a cooked breakfast down at the b & b just a short walk away and it was a real treat as the food is indeed very good.
If you are looking for somewhere on the Isle of Lewis for a few nights, I couldn't recommend these pods enough. So incredibly cosy and just lying listening to the waves crash was an experience to remember.
I've been debating a switch for a long time now from Nikon (which I have used for 12 years ) over to Fuji. I have had the XT-2 for a while, alongside my Nikons but I have been testing out the GFX 50s with different lens combinations recently. A huge thank you to...
